              Was less than that. Maybe 7-8? We had meetings on it when they were coming in and it was something like 800 properties in the state IIRC. They went for all of those properties all at once, it was crazy.

                Ahh you’re up north. Took a couple more years for them to explode all through Florida and build a million of them in Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach.

                Ironically Sunoco also started in Philly almost 80 years before Wawa as Sun Oil.

                I feel bad for some of the owners of the mom n pop places. Like this old Eastern Yuro couple that owns a nice Chevron, there was a Sunoco across the street that got knocked down like 5 years ago and replaced by a corporare Wawa and they were stressing.

        Young naive male, there are percolators that can go directly on the fire. The modern electric ones merely have an electric element integrated into the bottom.

        I would theoretically use a moka pot, as it's ?more compact. It's moot, as I quit the caffeine israelite awhile ago.

        You can probably get a dewalt or milwaukee battery to makita tool slide adapter, and use what you have, instead of investing in new batteries and chargers just for Makita.

      My absolute favorite makita tool isn't pictured, but they make a beam saw (basically a skill saw with a 16" diameter blade) that I love
      It has the motor and wide part of the shoe to the left of the blade (opposite from normal saws) which was perfect for someone who's left handed + right eye dominant

      Hopefully one day battery tech will be good enough to power units like this

        >opposite from normal saw
        The left- or right-handedness of circular saws is a debate in itself. To remain neutral, many will simply say "motor on left" or "motor on right". I own three circular saws:
        - corded Makita 7¼" -> motor on left
        - cordless DeWalt 6½" -> motor on right
        - cordless DeWalt 7¼" -> motor on left

        I know someone with a Milwaukee 6½" and the motor is on the right.

        I often use the saw to rip plywood installed on the top of a platform so I find it more natural to have the motor to the left (on the platform) as I walk along the edge of the platform. Also when I cut lumber, I measure from the left, so having more of the base on the longer piece that remains gives you more stability

        Ryobi does have one but only for Africans. TTI has no Ryobi license for Africa. I think it is a rebadged Kyocera from Japan (OG Ryobi Tool in JP was bought by Kyocera a couple years back).

              In my experience, you can get personal products from South Africa but it'll have to be a private courier and because South Africa is a dysfunctional hellhole with regular brownouts, international shipping is fricking expensive.
              I had the shipping quote for a couple sets of SA military surplus come out to ~$450cad for an order with a subtotal of ~$200cad.
              A single power tool is probably going to have even more of a shitty unit/shipping price ratio.

                I only received a DHL quote from the store as they're "the courier that's most reliable in their experience" whether that's true or not, shipping from South Africa to N. America does seem expensive with private couriers:
                https://www.eurosender.com/en/gdd/shipping-south-africa-canada
                >Economy shipping
                S. Africa does have a national postal service and shipping parcels to Zone 4 countries (N. America) is R252.70, a huge difference from DHLs R4430, but whether you'll trust that your parcel will arrive is a whole other story, considering South Africas current situation.

      The makita coffee maker and kettle work well for road construction when you have no power and you have to sit idling for hours waiting for asphalt to be rolled to test it. Make a pot in the truck, make friends with the paving crew on a cold morning, chuck batteries on the car charger. When charged back up you're ready to prep the fresh asphalt for testing using a makita blower. Government agencies frown upon propane or butane stoves unless you are drying soil for density tests.

      Some teas require it to be boiling right there and then. I fill the makita kettle (insulated) with boiling water from elsewhere, then it takes barely any power to reboil. A fresh cup of tea makes a jobsite with the nearest gas station 50 miles away more pleasant.

    This is the stupidest thing I’ver ever seen.
    It’s cheaper, lighter and a lot smaller to take a thermos of boiled water with you.
    To make 1 litre of (almost) boiling water from 20 degrees C you need about 300,000 joules of energy, or two full 4 Ah 18 V packs. Which weighs 2.6 lbs. the water weighs 2.2 lbs.

    It’s interesting my morning coffee has about the same energy as my makita impact battery pack fully charged in the morning.

    Those are fun, wish Ryobi would make one. Just an FYI, any brushed tool or a heating element can run directly off solar panels or even another large battery like your car battery/solar battery bank. It’s hard to find high power DC coffee makers. Those cheesy cigarette plug ones are a joke. A single cup might work but not a pot.

  28. 1 month ago

    I'll start off by saying that making coffee with battery power makes no sense, but the gimmick of providing one makes sense.

    Power tool manufacturers need to get tradesmen hooked on their proprietary systems because, as a contractor, I have just one multi-battery charger, as many batteries as I have laying around that are all charged by that charger, and a number of power tools that are all powered by the same two batteries, which are always available because I always keep a bunch of them charged.

    Since I am hooked on that one battery system, I end up buying things like vaccums, lanterns, heat guns, radios and speakers, and even heated jackets that are powered by those batteries, since I already own the batteries and chargers.

    Now if you're a clever engineer at one of these companies, you'll come up with anything electrical that can be powered by one of your batteries that can make your customers' lives easier on jobs with no power. If your battery system seems incomplete in any way, as in you don't offer something that your competitors do, your customers will start abandoning you completely.

    So I think the coffee maker is impractical and gimmicky, but I wouldn't put it past some frivilous tradesmen to abandon Milwaukee and DeWaltt because Makita has a coffee maker.

      I have made a couple adapters to adapt ryobi to other tools. To adapt a ryobi to a makita coffee maker, you will need:
      A Bosch to Makita adapter.

      1 soldering iron or some 12 AWG butt connectors (solder if possible)
      1 tube of amazing goop (glue that cures into a strong, slightly flexible rubber).
      1 hot glue gun and some hot glue.
      Start by cutting side holes in the ryobi stalk above the clamps. Clamp/solder to the makita adapter contacts. Hot glue both adapters together. Test electrical connection to makita tool. If it passes remove from all power then wire up and encapsulate in goop. Put outside for 3 days since goop curing is very flammable.
